The National Federation of the Tea Party, an organization that seeks to represent the Tea Party political movement in the country has forced Williams and his Tea Party Express organization because of the blog post inflammatory Williams wrote last week, the federation is Speaker David Webb said Sunday. In response, Williams said in another statement on his blog that “I refused all media requests on this” and canceled a scheduled interview on CNN to discuss the controversy Sunday evening, citing a last minute change in travel plans.
“It partiea tea reckless person who took the mantle of leadership is long enough for converting a critical and serious and delicate peace with groups skeptical of a personality conflict with World Wrestling style me at the center, Mr. Williams said. “There are internal political dramas in various self-appointed tea party leaders, and some minor players on the fringes see the Tea Party Express and Mark Williams as tickets to a booking on” memory [sic ] nation. ” ”
Webb appeared on the CBS program Sunday morning to announce that Williams and the Tea Party Express – who has held a series of demonstrations across the country to generate support for the movement – were not part of the National Federation Tea Party.
“We in the past 24 hours, expelled Tea Party Express and Mark Williams of the National Federation Tea Party because of the letter he wrote,” Webb said Williams, who is the blog of a satire fictitious letter what he called “Colored People” for President Abraham Lincoln.
NAACP President Ben Jealous met Williams statement saying CNN, “Good riddance, Mark Williams.” But he praised Tea Party activists like Webb, who is African-American to stand up and “self-control” of their movement.
“As the movement grows, you must act responsibly and should continue to do what they just did to Mark Williams and make it clear there is no room for bigots here, period, “Jealous said.

The 101 years of civil rights group cited signs carried in demonstrations Tea Party and racial slurs shouted at black members of Congress during the debate on health care as examples of racism in the movement.
“Mr. Lincoln,” began the letter of fiction published by Williams. “We have mixed a vote and decided we did not cotton to that thing any empowerment. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take the consequences with the rewards. It’s just too much to ask of us people of color and we demand that the stop! ”
Williams went on to write that the movement Tea Party could not be racist because it opposed the government bailout for Wall Street banks and large corporations.
“Bonds welfare money just is not that great and we want all people of color to achieve?” The announcement said. “What kind of racist, trying to end well be a lot of money? What they should do is start the delivery rescues directly to us people of color! ”
Williams, a conservative talk radio host, said the message was intended as a satire. He took the criticism mounted.
Some politicians questioned the Sunday Talk shows also said the movement Tea Party itself was not racist, but needed to stand out from all the elements that bring the prejudices and bigotry of its events.
“There are members who have used the Tea Party – from the Tea Party itself, there are some people who tried to exacerbate racial tensions in this country,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland, said on CNN’s “State of the Union. “” I saw virulent leaflets have been sent to our members, obviously referencing race, race and the President of the breed in general. ”
On the same show, however, minority leader of the Senate Mitch McConnell R-Kentucky, kept out of the question, saying: “I am not interested in getting into this debate.”
